Can a fuse be used or will all the pressure escape through the fuse hole?? 5 * instructable

A sparkiler works as a fuse, you have to rap it very well.
I have no fuse to try but it may work.
I made one of these except it had a fuse and it just shot gases out the fuse hole. So then I made another one with a longer fuse and dropped it into a plastic container and screwed the lid on and it blew up. I have pictures of the bottle that I could post if you want me to.

Just a tip for a more explosive exciting match box bomb;



get two boxes of matchs and cram as many as you can into the one box then wrap it in tin foil

Well doen
